Heather Cline is a professional visual artist based in Saskatchewan. Cline has a deep interest in public interaction, and has participated in residency programs and community engagement across Canada. Her activities have included setting up a ‘Story Collection’ office from an inner-city store front in Oshawa, Ontario and riding along on combines in rural Manitoba. In her most recent art work she is exploring the radically altered terrain of Western Canada in a series of aerial landscape paintings based on observations from the passenger seat of a Cessna Skyhawk. In the spring of 2023 Cline is starting a major collaborative project with the Nature Conservancy of Canada. The goal of this new project is to explore Western Canadian landscape through a conservation lens. Cline will be working with Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) staff, volunteers and stakeholders, exploring some of the important conservation work done by the organization through interaction on the land and in the air.
Cline has her MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and has exhibited in multiple group exhibitions, with solo exhibitions at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery (Oshawa, ON), the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon, and regional exhibition centers throughout Western Canada. Her work can be found in many public and private collections, including the Colart Collection, the Mendel Collection at the Remai Modern and the Saskatchewan Arts Board.
